If you catch him drinking out of the toilet or licking the shower he gets very angry and snaps which is unlike him, he is a pretty calm dog. This has been going on for a very long time (about a year or so). It suddenly came on, it wasn't very gradual. We tried the veterinarian and they thought it might be a parasite. They gave him meds but it didn't work.
We really don't have the money right now to take him in early for another appointment.
Thank you so much!
I am surprised your vet did not test your dog to see if he has any medical issues, there are a few medical issues that will cause a dog to drink more water, I hope you can find a way to get your dog to a vet , he could get dehydrated very easy being a small dog.
